VIVEKA VON ROSEN: Social Media and Your Business
If you are a business leader, you can’t afford to dismiss social media any longer. Your customers are using LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, podcasts and other social media tools to talk about your products and services. Ignoring these virtual conversations will not only result in being left behind, but you might be left clueless as towhat’s being said about you. More importantly, there may be ways to monetize what is being said.
